Old school American Chinese. Not as authentic as some but it is a very nice dining experience with wait staff that has been there for years. It has the feel of the old time supper club. There is a bar that the locals hang out at. Good for take out too.

This is my favorite Mexican restaurant. Great authentic Mexican food. Nice bar area. Fab Margaritas. Really good value. During the summer there is outdoor seating and on Friday and Saturday late afternoon into evening there is often a little band on the patio. Reservations for seating are a must these days due to limited seating for COVID regulations

Voted Best Gyros in Minnesota. It's about $8 for a really great one with everything. Traditional or Chicken versions, roasted potatoes, salads and Baklava. Yum. There is seating but it is a small place. Basically lunches and most evenings. Not open Saturday evening or Sunday. They are a family owned business and they go to church on those times. Order on line and they will bring it out to your car. There is now indoor ordering and seating. This is an all time favorite of mine.

There are all sorts of restaurants and a couple bars in here. Walburgers is the newest one, owned by the Walberg brothers. Restaurants range from fast food in the food court to some very nice sit down. Grab some food then go up to 3rd floor and see a movie then top it off with a drink at one of the bars up there.

This is my favorite place to go for brunch. The girlfriends all insist on going here when they come into town to visit. It is Farm to Table. The owners of the restaurant also have the farm that the food comes from. They own the nursery across the street too. The food is tasty and a wonder of flavors. The menu varies daily with what is currently available on the farm. Of course the Mimosas and Bloody Marys didn't originate on the farm but they are still really good.

Wonderful small Italian restaurant. Everything is made fresh and tastes delicioso. Nice size servings are a fair price. It is in my old neighborhood in Minneapolis but it is really worth the 5 mile drive.
